            Boosting risk literacy: How to transparently communicate uncertainty to lay audiences
            (VIRTUAL)

            Abstract
            As of today, forecasts and warnings for severe weather events are still often communicated
            in a deterministic way, despite the probabilistic nature of the underlying data. One main
            concern has been the difficulty to transparently communicate probability information
            to lay audiences in order to guide their decision. In this talk, I will give a primer
            on risk communication. I will introduce some key challenges for communicating uncertainty,
            review examples of do’s and don'ts, and present insights from risk communication research
            on how to communicate uncertainty in a transparent way. I will conclude by outlining
            crucial steps to boost the risk literacy of the public and decision makers in real-world situations.
